Ever since the introduction of the netbook there have been those who have complained the prices of the miniature laptops begin to approach those of more powerful budget laptops the second you deviate from only the bottom of the barrel netbook options. Never has this been more true with the new eMachines eMD620-5777. Introduced in late October 2008 - set to launch on November 1st - the 14.1" laptop will feature a mixture of both laptop and netbook into a package that doesn't cost much more than the set $399 price point for the netbook segment. Featuring a 15W single core 1.6GHz AMD Athlon 2650e CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, onboard ATI Radeon x1200 video - and most importantly, a DVD writer, the eMD620-5777 is set to sell at $429.99.

Features
  • CPU/RAM: single core AMD Athlon 2650e, 15W TDP, 1.6GHz, 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • Storage/Optical: 160GB HDD, DVD writer
  • graphics: 14.1" screen, powered by the onboard ATI Radeon x1200
